The FACTS about the pay gap:

Or why the Lilly Ledbetter Pay Act wasn’t enough, four years later:

— Women make just 77 cents for every $1 made by men. 

— For African-American, Latina women, it’s much worse: They earn just 70 cents for every dollar paid to men and 64 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

– The amount a woman loses to the pay gap could feed a family of four for 37 years.

– The pay gap starts early

– The wage gap grows over a woman’s career, leading to more than $430,000 in lost wages for an individual woman.

– A woman’s pay, on average, stops growing when she turns 39

In an interview with GQ, Beyoncé calls out the gender pay gap:


"Equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat?”


 And of course, she’s completely right.
